      Creator Onery on March 7, 2013

      Poster 2 :)

      Creator Far0s on March 2, 2013

      I think 2 is a really good picture, really showing the view of the game !

    3. Missing_small

      Creator AllenLC on March 1, 2013

      Voting for 3, with 1 being a close second

      Creator Bobson on February 28, 2013

      I really like #3, but I think #2 is a better *poster*. I'm not a fan of the green, though. Maybe a recolor of #2? That'd be my vote.

    5. Missing_small

      Creator Javier Aravena Claramunt on February 27, 2013

      Number 1 looks bloody awesome.

    6. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Peter Holthaus on February 24, 2013

      Number 2.
      It's got a good focus on the ship while still showing a modest amount of obstacles.
      Number 1 just doesn't have enough focus on the ship, it's more a little blop in the background there.
      Number 3 and 4 are too cluttered with obstacles.

      Creator James Coote on February 23, 2013

      1 please. 4 is my second preference and while 2 is cool, the colour scheme doesn't quite feel in keeping.

    8. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Andreas Erich Höffernig on February 23, 2013

      1. I absolutely love it.

    9. Missing_small

      Creator Neon-Target on February 23, 2013

      222222222222!

    10. Missing_small

      Creator Shawn Adams on February 22, 2013

      4 but with the letters better spaced out

    11. Profile%20pic.small

      Creator Matthew Howell on February 22, 2013

      2 gets my vote.

    12. Valve%20avatar%20-%20e.small

      Creator Peter de Castro on February 22, 2013

      OoooooOoOoOoo, definitely #1!

      They all look cool, but the general style and looming darkness make the first my favorite. I'm getting an old-school sci-fi illustration vibe from it -- Forbidden Planet, maybe. I also have this strange desire to re-read Asimov's Nightfall now.

      #2's pretty sweet, too, though.

    13. Dusty_tardis.small

      Creator Dusty C on February 22, 2013

      #3. The second poster doesn't really capture the lovely stark look from the gameplay video, even if the angle is cool.

    14. Missing_small

      Creator venuse8102 on February 22, 2013

      i would say 2

    15. 3805d980efa5f5001960e24dc15d6d49_large.small

      Creator Dermott on February 22, 2013

      My vote for 3, but 2 is close

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Thail on February 22, 2013

      2, not close.

    17. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Charlie Garcia on February 22, 2013

      The perspective is great on #3, but the composition is better on #2.
      So #2 have my vote !

    18. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Zachary Snader on February 22, 2013

      Sketch 3. They're all awesome but I like the full perspective you get from that view.

    19. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Chris Plaatjes on February 22, 2013

      Definitely #2

    20. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Michael Wood on February 22, 2013

      #2 best portrays the 3 main elements of the game, as well as conveys the 'feel' of the game

    21. Missing_small

      Creator Benoit Pierre on February 22, 2013

      I would pick number 2.

    22. Icon.small

      Creator Bit By Bit Studios on February 22, 2013

      Number 2, love the perspective, the colors, and that the sun is right beneath the word "sun".

    23. Ted_picture.small

      Creator Ted Lauterbach on February 22, 2013

      Number 2! Digging the colors on it, too!
